For "American Idol" fans who think Nicki Minaj is all wrong for the talent competition show, there is hope. Minaj says she might not stick around after this season.


"I don't know, we'll see," Minaj, 30, said when E! online  asked her if she would be returning. "See the thing is, we're only half way done so, I am absolutely enjoying 'Idol' but I don't know how I'm going to feel at the end of it."

In addition to less-than-stellar reviews of Minaj as a judge by music industry types and fans alike, the hip hop and pop star hasn't been getting along with her fellow judges. Minaj also said she will be heading back to the recording studio and might not have time for the show.

Minaj added that she and Mariah Carey, who she has famously bumped heads with, have made peace. "We had our differences, but it is all done with now, and we just get in there and do our job," Minaj told Yahoo.


She also told Extra that she hasn't had plastic surgery despite the rumors and that her unique look is achieved through MAC cosmetics. "I've never had surgery. When people see my makeup they think all types of crazy things that I'm doing to my skin, but it's makeup."


"American Idol" airs Wednesdays and Thursdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on FOX.

I am appaulded that she makes a comment about a 19 yo contestants boobs as the contestants MOM is sitting in the audience

I have listened to her week after week say the most inappropriate things !!
When is A I going to put her off this show. She may critic singers well but her delivery is NOT PROFESSIONAL

She is trash and has no class.  To say her comments are inappropriate is an understatement.  What were they thinking?

She's a sweet heart, it takes all types of people to make this world go 'round. listen to yourselves... pure hatred. Everything that she says in her judging is usually dead on. Check her out: Millions of album sales, E! series, perfume, cartoon voice over, pepsi endorsement, mac emdorsement and the list goes on... somebody somewhere is on to something to bad you all are missing it.

She's actually not that bad as a judge.

What did this piece of crap woman do to get on Idol, and why hasn't someone fired her by now?   She has no worth on the show, and I am tired of her comments about how fine all the guys are.   Go out and get laid and come back!!     She can't hold a candle to Mariah, and she knows it.    And, they only need 3 judges on Idol, not 4.   She has ruined the credibility of the whole show, and she has no talent and no reason to be judging those who do.    I also think Randy needs to go . . . he's been there too long and we need new blood.

Mar 3, 2013 1:16AM
Damn I was getting my hopes up thinking she was leaving this year. I thought i could watch the res of this years competition, because  I refuse to watch it if she is a judge. She ruins the entire show
Mar 3, 2013 12:05AM
Leave now!!! I do not llike her on A.I.
Mar 3, 2013 12:05AM
What are you waiting for you freak? This is the best thing that could happen to the show. See ya!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  She had no business being on the show in the first place. She is a no talent skank!
Mar 2, 2013 11:14PM
Please leave now.What a piece of crap this b_ _ _ h  is. Biggest mistake yet having this poop face b_ _ _h is.
Mar 2, 2013 10:55PM

Mar 2, 2013 10:20PM
 I would use the word tha best describes this prejudice creatue.. but alas.. I want ot continue to make comments nad not be blocked for it or have my comment deleted or shrunk. anyone that says Steven Tyler is prejudice.. A man who for the longewst time was a sex at aka SATUR.. Really.. I am still not over that.. she giv hip hp a bad name and should have nothing to do with IDOL.She went on I stopped watching.

Nicki has no credibility.  She hasn't paid her dues enough to warrant being a judge.  Ladybug, go find something else to do.  This ain't it.  Go on the Springer show, where everyone talks over each other.  You'd fit right in.
Mar 2, 2013 10:06PM
good! i hope she leaves. she doesnt fit in one bit.  cant stand her
Mar 2, 2013 9:49PM
Didn't take long for her to "change her mind".  Just like Piers Morgan stated (in effect):  Time to deport yourself back to Trinidad/Tobago.
Mar 2, 2013 9:39PM
I didn't watch it when Ellen was a judge and I am not watching it again because of Nicki and Mariah. Get some real talented judges and my family and I will start watching again.

Minaj doesnt bring enough class to the show.  Our family gathers on Wednesday and Thursday nights to watch American Idol and she says highly inappropriate comments and now she is beginning to say extremely rude and demeaning things to the contestants.  Pls put Jennifer back in that seat!  Minaj aside, Keith Urban is always professional and provides constructive criticism when needed, not to mention he is super hot!  Mariah is always beautiful and positive and Randy is able to critique contestants based on his professional experience.

Don't wait another second, boot her off now and get Queen Latifa!!! I have not watched this show for the first time since it started just upon hearing that this low life, no talent skank would be on it.
Mar 2, 2013 8:49PM
Sure hope so, she's one reason I don't watch.
